Your links didn't come through.

I have the black headgear shown above with the chin protector -- mine is red. I have been boxing for a year, I spar with heavyweights 2-3 times per week, and I have had only three fat lips, all from uppercuts that grazed, in the 9 months I've had the headgear. The mouth protection of the full-face headgear is excellent. Nose protection is moderate but it is far better than not having the chinpiece. The chin protector helps deflect a straight punch from a 16 oz. glove. If you plan to regularly spar full-speed, I recommend the full-face headgear, just because it will mean less time between injuries. Keep in mind that you will need to borrow someone's open-face headgear when it comes time to compete; I'd suggest using it from time to time so you don't get lazy and depend on the full-face headgear. I found out a week before my first fight that my opponent's jab would drive my rear hand into my lip. :owned:

I particularly like the feel of the Title Gel gloves:

I think they are a quantum leap forward in technology and the price is comparable to new professional gloves. The gel forms to your hands giving you a custom fit, they are sleek and deliver solid hits, and the stitching is heavy and they are well-built. I have a pair of the 20 oz. bag gloves, and will be ordering a pair of the training gloves in 16 oz. for sparring once my current sparring gloves (16 oz. Everlast Pro) wear out, as well as a Gel headgear with chin protector to match.

If you want bag gloves, I have to recommend the Title Gel Bag Gloves. They are the most comfortable glove I have ever had. Theyre a little heavy and slow but they feel better than anyothers and I dont get hurt knuckles when I use them.

For sparring, Im not sure I got the IMFs and the INternationals and the title training gloves. The titles seem cheap, the Internationals seem to blocky, and the IMFs are too hard. SO you might wanna look at others ones than these.

For headgear, the Gel Headgear from Title looks good too.

I have those Everlast hook and loop training gloves, the first ones. They're excellent and I've had mine for about six months. I had a set of the cheap Everlasts and they were very tight on my hands. The Gel gloves are more comfortable and are smaller; the 20-oz. Gel bag gloves I have are about the size of 12-oz. gloves. FYI.

The Gel gloves have, well, gel inside instead of foam or horsehair. The gel cushions your hands, makes the glove heavier while presenting a slimmer profile, and forms to your hands for a custom fit. The quality of the leather and stitching between the two gloves is comparable, IMO.

i have the everlast pro training gloves (http://store.titleboxing.com/titleboxing-everlast-velcro-trainig-gloves.html) in 16oz, had them for about a week now. everytime i use them, i get pain near my thumb:

it probably needs more time to break in. it's also kind of hard to make a fist in those.

i also have the title platinum training gloves (http://store.titleboxing.com/platinum-training-gloves.html) in 16oz, they're excellent. i can make a fist in them easily, and i dont get that thumb pain when using them. the striking surface is very soft, too.

When I bought the Everlast Pro gloves, the Gel gloves weren't on the market, yet. They're very new. If the Gel gear had come out a year earlier, I'd have Gel everything right now. I like the Gel technology that much.

The Gel gloves are heavier, but they are weighted so you can get whatever weight you want. I like a heavy bag glove, and I liked hitting people with them for the first week or so until I realized how huge a difference there is between a 20 oz. and a 16-oz. glove. The Everlast 16's are bigger and faster. For combat, you can't beat that.
